This week in GIN — 14th of Sept, 2018

Middle of the month and we’re just as busy. We’ve kept the coin updates light this week as we had bigger fish to fry. Drumroll, please.

To ensure secure access to the GIN Platform, we’ve partnered up with Civic Technologies, a blockchain based company that will enable us to secure your GIN Platform accounts and protect your identity. Since we want our platform’s environment to be trustworthy and safe, we’ve decided it was time to move beyond a simple password or seed. Now, your portfolios will be safely tucked in trust and security, while you are collecting your passive income. Pretty neat, right?

Transparency is key. Though you might need a key to open that box. “apple and pear in clear glass display” by Randy Fath on Unsplash

The month of August brought to you a full identity disclosure on behalf of GIN team. Keeping up with our desire to be fully transparent, another important change is coming your way in order to ensure compliance with EU regulations. This is why we will be soon starting to issue invoices for server fees and application fees transactions. This won’t affect the prices our customers have to pay, so no need to worry about that. But we will be needing additional details from you — full name and country, which you can easily add to your account on the platform. So, from now on, all the services that you will be paying for will be securely guaranteed through the invoice, since we will require these new details for all future deposits.

Our third important change to announce this week will give our platform’s masternode owners governance over the coins’ submission tiers. This way we give power to the people, so use it wisely when choosing the tiers for each coin. ;) This change will take place next week, so keep an eye out for it.

And last, but not least, we have been selectively invited to participate and share our views on blockchain investing at an event in London next week. The crowd will be formed of institutional investors from the US and Europe, new startups in the blockchain scene and technical&marketing advisors. Emil Muthu and Alex Stanescu will be present there as GIN representatives and masternode evangelists. We plan to spread awareness on masternodes investing as a serious and legally sound investment, if done through reliable and trusted partners such as GIN platform. For London-located GIN fans, please join us https://www.eventbrite.com/e/blockchain-investing-with-ico-and-vc-master-andrew-romans-tickets-49114687352. We’d love to have some of you around and actually meet in person!
